Default Rewriting my Personal History

When I was in Colorado last summer visitng my mother, I swiped a picture she had on display in her living room. It was taken about eight years ago at my brother's wedding on a horribly hot day in September. My currently 15 yr old son had no idea who that fat woman in the picture was! We scanned it into the computer when I got home. I got cleaned up and took a new pic of myself, and with the wonders of Photoshop...voila!

Here's Mel, her thin mom and skinny sisters-in-law (June 2000):



Here's my new version of history:


And a head shot from about a year ago- January 2007:

That is amazing Mel! (Both your technical skills and your weight loss!)

So how many pounds was that? You look so much happier!

You look great. Another inspiration. I love how you can "re-write" history like that.

Wow! You don't even look like the same person. No wonder your son didn't know you.

We are all writing our history today. I'm glad you will be part of my history.
